Paul Retires from CDS Partnership

Paul HarvegoPaul Harvego retired from the CDS partnership on 1-1-2019, but continues to remain a trusted advisor to our audit clients. We are excited to have his expertise and knowledge with our firm in the years to come. Paul writes, “I have confidence that our clients are in good hands with the leadership of our government audit team managers and our dedicated audit team. They will provide you with the highest standard of excellence throughout each engagement.”

With retirement, Paul has been able to enjoy a little more down time this summer.





Paul stated, “Retirement has been so relaxing – didn’t know I could feel this way. We have been busy going to our lake cabin and catching up on projects there, and have found time to fish. My wife and I now have time to do some trail riding again, doing our daily four mile walk around the lake and most of all spending more time with our granddaughters – watching their dance recitals and swimming lessons.”

Paul continues to work with our clients and government audit team overseeing our City and School District audits, conducting technical and quality reviews, and remaining a trusted advisor to our audit clients and team members.

Congrats, Paul on your retirement!
